French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian says “the EU will not yield to… blackmail” by Turkey after Ankara’s recent decision to lift its controls for migrants entering the EU, reneging on a 2016 agreement with the bloc.

Several thousand migrants have reportedly been trying to cross into Greece since Turkey said last week that it would no longer abide by a 2016 deal agreed with the EU to halt illegal migration flows into Europe in return for some €6 billion ($6.7 billion) in aid, and would open the crossings on its side of the border.
